{Recipe} Peaches & Vanilla Green Smoothie

Peaches & Vanilla Green Smoothie from Real Mom Nutrition

The Polar Vortex got me dreaming of warmer temperatures in faraway places–where thermometers have never seen minus 10 degrees at high noon and where you don’t need to wear a ski mask to take out the recycling.

That was the inspiration for this smoothie, a new favorite of mine. Close your eyes and it’s part fruity summer drink, part vanilla milkshake.

Read “Make-Ahead Green Smoothie Packets” for tips on assembling these ahead of time.

I always forget about frozen peaches. What a great twist on the traditional green smoothie!

Thanks Jaime. I usually freeze some peaches after picking them too, though those don’t usually last very long!

Would it work with frozen spinach?

Annie–I don’t think you’d get the same results and would recommend using fresh spinach instead (you can always buy fresh, though, and freeze it in the make-ahead smoothie packets I talk about here: http://www.realmomnutrition.com/2013/12/06/make-ahead-green-smoothie-packets/
